Abstract
In the present study, we proposed a universal model to simulate the muscle/tendon excursions and moment arms in a thumb using the commercial software AnyBody. One of the important features of the proposed model over the previous studies is that the proposed approach can include the realistic bony geometries, such that the mechanical consequence of the variations in the attachment locations of the muscles/tendons can be investigated.
